T^HE purpose of this work is to give a short sketch of the lineage 
* of prominent persons in Canada to-day, with notes of anything 
of interest or importance regarding any ancestor, and especially to record, 
briefly but permanently, the achievements of those who, having served their 
country with distinction, have passed away, but whose names should not be 
dropped or their deeds forgotten, as is necessarily the case in reference 
works the scope of which is limited to the living. 

It was intended at first to confine the work to families of early settlers; 
but it cannot be overlooked that Canada, though old in tradition, is yet, in 
its broad expanse, but a new country, whose citizenship is constantly being 
augmented by new comers from the older stock of the mother lands. The 
scope of the work, therefore, will include those who, however recent, are 
intentionally residents in Canada. 

The work will portray the armorials of such of the families herein em- 
braced as have coat-armour and are accustomed to use it, for the 
recognition and preservation of those cognizances borne by our forefathers 
lend to enhance the interest and value of family history. 

The Heraldic Addenda contain the arms of notables connected with 
the events in Acadia, New France, and the two Canadas. Others will be 
added in subsequent sections. 

The Provincial Armorials are in accordance with the designs and 
official descriptions furnished through the kindness of the several Secretaries 
of the Provinces. 

It will be noticed that the shield armorials of the Dominion seem com- 
plicated (although composed only of the arms of the first four provinces to 
enter Confederation), yet are quite bare of those component parts which go 
to a complete achievement ; i. e., crest, supporters, and motto. It is to be 
hoped that a shield will soon be adopted simpler to the eye, yet more 
comprehensively representative and having its proper complements. 

The Editor is very much indebted to the advice and kind co-operation 
of the author of "Ontarian Families."— Mr. EM. Chadwick, K.C. of Tor- 
onto — to whose judgment and learning, especially in ecclesiastical heraldry, 
the writer has been glad to defer.

nPHE appointment of Lord Monck in 1 86 1 to the office of Captam 
*• General and Governor in Chief of Canada was not favorably received 
by the Canadian press at the time, on the ground that he "was an inex- 
perienced and unknown man, utterly unpracticed in any kind of statesmanlike 
work" to guide the Ship of State at the critical period of approaching Con- 



federation. He was not long in office, however, when stirring events proved 
that he possessed all the ability necessary to meet the occasion. First came 
•The Trent affair," 1 862, that raised bad blood in the country, and re- 
quired wise and tactful administration. Then in 1 864 a Ministerial crisis 
was brought about through parties being too evenly balanced in the House 
and the Government was defeated by two on a measure of vital importance 
to the country. On petition of the Ministry for dissolution. His Excellency, 
while expressing his willingness to abide by the advice of his ministers, set 
forth, in an able memorandum, the dilficulties of the situation and advised a 
course that would avoid appealing to the electorate, where there seemed, 
through the excited condition of the country, but litde chance of a satisfac- 
tory result. The wisdom of this advice the Ministry acknowledged and 
followed. Under his regime the plan of Confederation was worked out 
and accomplished in 1 867, he becoming first Governor General; he relin- 
quished office in 1868. (A. Hamlyn Todd.)

'Through,' which word, vsdth the oak and saw through it, he took for a crest to 
commemorate his deliverance."

Baron Xt0aar,2n^ (Bovernor (general of Canada. 

OlR JOHN YOUNG (1807-76). 2nd baronet of Bailieborough 
*^ Castle, Co. Cavan, was educated for the bar, to which he was 
called at the age of twenty-seven. In 1831 he entered political life, 
becoming member for Co. Cavan as a moderate Tory. In 1 84 1 he 
was appointed a lord of the Treasury in Sir Robert Peel's ministry; 
and three years later became one of the Secretaries of the Treasury. 
In 1 846 he was Chief Secretary for Ireland under Lord Aberdeen, 
and entered the Privy Council in 1852. In 1855 he was appointed 
Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands (G. C. M. G.) — then 
under a British protectorate — ; and, in 1861, accepted the Governor 
Generalship of New South Wales, which office he held until 1 867. 
In both the latter offices he was unfortunate, in that he left each under 
the cloud of official displeasure, caused rather by adverse and trying 
circumstances than by poor judgment. That the government appre- 
ciated these facts and had confidence in his abilities is attested by his 
bemg gazetted a G. C. B., and offered the governor-generalship of 
Canada — at a time, too, as events proved, when sound judgment was 



It was, in a measure, due to those same misfortunes that Young 
determined to accept the Canadian office ; for it had been tendered to 
Lord Mayo and others, who refused it, on the ground that "the Cana- 
dian government had impaired the dignity of the office by reducing the 
governor's salary." Sir John was appointed to the position, which 
included the governorship of Prince Edward Island — not then con- 
federated — in 1 869. The first year of his administration was dark- 
ened by the first Riel Rebellion. The following year he was created 
Baron Lisgar of Lisgar and Bailieborough. He resigned in 1872, 
and died four years later, when the barony became extinct. 

That his short official life in Canada was successful is best evi- 
denced, perhaps, by the following quotation from Pope's "Life of Sir 
John Macdonald:" "In Sir John Macdonald's opinion. Lord Lisgar 
was an ideal governor, the ablest of all those under whom he served; 
Sir John Young was a man of great sagacity, of large experience, and 
sound judgment. His single desire was to promote the best interests of 
the Dominion of Canada, and to his wnse and prudent counsels Sir 
John Macdonald was greatly indebted" (Editor).

"According to Longmuir's edition of Jamieton's Scottish dictionarj, the 
word 'heriot' is derived from the Anglo-Seixon, and signified the tribute given 
to the lord of the manor for his better preparation for war; but came at length 
to denote the best beast, of whatever kind, which a tenant died possessed of, due to 
his superior after death. Professor Innes, in his work entitled, 'G)ncerning Some 
Scottish Surnaunes,* classes the surname 'Heriot' among those derived from places 
or lands. There is a parish and a river in it, both of the name of 'Heriot,' about 
twenty miles southeast of Edinburgh; also a small stream of the name in the parish 
of G>ckburnspath, Berwickshire. The first notice believed to have been yet found 
of the name used as a surname is that of 'Willelmo de Heryt,' who was witneM to 
a charter granted by King William the Lyon, prior to 1214." 

The Scottish historian, George Buchanan (1506-82), whose mother was 
Agnes Heriot, a daughter of the house of Trabroun, says that William Heriot and 
another aided in the escape of Robert, High Steward of Scotland, from Rolhesay, 
whither he had fled from the English, after the battle of Halidon Hill (1333) 
The escape of the Steward, afterward Robert II„ proved to be one of the most 
important events in Scottish history. 

By a charter from Archibald, Earl of Douglas, in 1423, confirmed by 
James I. of Scotland, the lands of Trabroun, some 400 acres in East Lothain, 
were granted, for military service, to John Heriot, who is described 2is "squire and 
son to his confederate, James Heriot of Niddry Marischal. " The estates were 
held in the family until the death of the last direct male heir in 1620.

"Magna Britannica" states that the name Durnford, which was anciently 
spelled "de Derneford," derives its name from a village in Normandy; that the 
family received for its services at the battle of Hastings, grants of land in Devon 
and Cornwall, including Rame Head, acquired by marriage with the daughter of 
Rame of Rame. The branch described below has for centuries borne the ram's 
head for arms. According to tradition the family came over with William the 
Conqueror. There are lands in North Cadbury, Somersetshire, still called "Durn- 
ford's Grounds." The parish registers of North Cadbury shew that toward the
